Improvements to Onshape - May 3rd, 2019
SPLIT BOMYou can now split the Bill of Materials in an Onshape Drawing.
JOG POINTS IN ORDINATE DIMENSIONSWhen manipulating ordinate dimensions, you will now see additional controls that allow you to re-position jogs.
DRAWING VIEW RENDER MODEYou can now set the render mode used in drawing views in Onshape. By default, the render mode will be set to "Best performance" on all new drawings, but can be set to "Best quality" if you want to favor quality over performance. Drawing views created prior to this update will be set to "High quality" but can be changed. This improvement combined with some other performance improvements has led to a significant decrease in drawing load times as well as the time it takes to generate drawing views.
LARGE ASSEMBLY PERFORMANCEThe performance of large assemblies has been improved with this update. The most noticeable change is the decrease in time it takes to open a large assembly that is referencing many Part Studio tabs. In the past, this involved pulling in each Part Studio in a serial process, but with this update, that process is now done in parallel.
DETAIL PANE IMPROVEMENTSImprovements have been made to the Detail Pane to make it easier to use. Now when you select a Document from the Documents page you can choose to view the "Details" or the "Share Details."
ADD COMMENTS TO PAST RELEASES/OBSOLETIONSYou can now add comments to past releases or obsoletions.
USING PROJECT ROLES AS APPROVERS OR OBSERVERSWhen creating a release candidate, you can now use Project Roles for the Approver or Observer field.
